Sow February to June or September to October in pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 15-20C (59-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 7-21 days. Can also be sown outdoors once the soil has warmed, 3mm (1/8 inch)deep in drills 30cm (12 inches)apart in well-cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 45cm (18 inches)apart.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch)pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 45cm (18 inches)apart.

For best results, provide a fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun.

  1. Great plants!

    By Karen Bruton 28-02-2015

    Good sturdy plants and good germination rate too. Malvas are a great choice for poor soil and seem indestructible - needing very little care. The purple flowered version is also recommended and will come back each year when other plants fail.

  2. Lovely

    By Aileen Conway 07-01-2015

    Grown from seed and produced large, healthy plants which flowered for a lengthy period despite a lack of TLC! Buds and seed pods add extra interest to the appearance. Will be growing a few more next year.
